IF this is true,
IF Faux News is reporting the full story,
IF it was known about and sanctioned by the DNC,
Then I would have to say it supports what I have believed about the DNC all along: they have no respect for tradition or symbolism, and thusly no
respect for those who feel strongly about something not personally important to themselves.
That's not a blanket condemnation of all Democrats. It's a blanket condemnation of the DNC. There is a huge difference. The DNC are those
politicians who control the party; a Democrat is someone who tends to side with the Democratic Platform.
That's also not to say that the RNC is much better. Perhaps they do have a bit more reverence for the flag, but I'm also sure there are plenty of
politicians who see this as simply a good tactic to garner support. And again, I do not include Republicans (people who tend to side with the
Republican Platform) with the RNC (the politicians in charge of the party).
I will say this: the fact that it happened (see first three lines) is an indication that someone around that area does not have respect for the
American Flag. While they have every right under our Constitution to desecrate the flag, I have every right under the same document to point out that
they are hypocrites, using freedom to decry that same freedom. Come to think of it, I just did.
I suggest we all watch this story break, listen to the statements from all sides, and then decide individually who we believe based on the evidence.
And then, come Election Day, we should remember who is guilty of such a desecration and hypocritical act before we pull that lever.
